Killims are usually found in the Near East, particularly in Iran. Certain regions such as Shiraz, Kurdistan and Baluchestan are renowned for their creations. Up until very recently, kilims were not made for commercial consumption and so preserved their authenticity for domestic use. They represent at once the memory and identity of the sedentary, nomad and semi-nomad peoples who weave them. Each tribe and each village has its own style. Kilim patterns are geometric and inspired by the nomadic life and their beliefs, the tones are ethnic and the texture is fine. To the west of Iran, in the province of Kurdistan, Sanandaj is the centre of this type of Kilim which still bears as always the name of Senneh, given to the production of these very tight and costly carpets/kilims. Carpets with fine designs and lots of colours. This kind of Kilim is reversible and usable from two sides. Generally a Kilim is hairless, which is why it is fine. Thanks to the composition of its colours and its design, it passes perfectly to varied decorations, both old and modern.

Dimension: 305 x 204 cm.
Material: wool on cotton
Origin: Iran-Sanandaj

  • Super helpful and understanding seller - when the courier company failed to notify me of an attempted delivery, with their help we tracked down the package. Excellent seller.
